    Eelco's trading journal !!!

    So this is my first real money trade, it was ITM but feel that I somewhat convinced myself to take this trade.

    On screen I have the 8 and 30 EMA and stochastics. As described in image, the reasoning:
    • Seemed to be ranging (just)
    • Identified possible resistance
    • Resistance not broken and confirmed by 1 bearish candle
    • Distance last bullish candle to 8 EMA is reasonably large
    • Thought price would move to 30 EMA or lower.
    • Stochastics is somewhat overbought


    The downward movement ended below the 30 EMA and than moved up again. It up movement also broke the resistance I identified. So maybe I was a bit lucky.
    One more note: i did mistakenly identified the last bullish/bearihs candle formation as dark cloud.

    Al feedback is more than welcome.

    See now the image is pretty small, smaller than the actual size it was saved. Not sure how to upload larger one.

    Figured it out

    How to write a trading diary

    Always save the files as JPEG. By the way, do yourself a favor and remove the navigator window and the market watch.
    Give yourself more room to see the charts. If you need the navigator and market watch you can always open them later when used.
